Pray for Fred

My name is Sean. My girlfriend Lexie and I are the proud owners of a soon to be 4 year old mini dachshund named Fred.

You'd never know it from the photos but he's terrified of my camera. Either that or her just likes making my job as a photographer difficult.

Back problems are a common issue to Fred's breed. This morning we woke up to him laying at our feet (instead of on our faces) unable to move. His back legs completely immobile, and his back swollen. 

We rushed Fred from the veterinarian to the animal hospital. With a herniated disk in his back there is no promise he will walk normaly again. We had two options, imediate surgery or to put him down. We admitted him right away.

Fred's bill comes to a little over $7,200

We would never ask our friends and family to pay our debts, but we felt it smart to accept donations for whoever felt they would like to help.

Anything is appreciated, including positive thoughts.
